Stones Institute founder Daryl Stones, a member of Mensa and National Guild of Hypnotists practitioner, tailors hypnotherapy sessions to unearth and extinguish the causes of various physical and mental ailments, such as anxiety, panic attacks, and smoking addictions. Each personalized 50-minute session delves into the underlying reasons behind these afflictions, combating problems with supportive reinforcement to uproot paralyzing phobias, confidence issues, Cold War–sleeper-cell triggers, and sleep disorders that stand in the way of comfortable living. Sessions often spill past the 50-minute mark as Daryl customizes each subconscious exploration to the needs of her clients. Stones Institute also offers energywork and healing services, including reiki.
Meet the Hypnotist: Rebecca Lauer, CHt
Rebecca Lauer became fascinated with hypnosis, psychology, and metaphysics in her early teens.

AcuBalance Wellness Center is the longtime dream of friends and college mates Ausra Januseviciute and Vera Kulezic. While interning together, the two friends learned they shared the same passion not only for acupuncture, but also for other facets of holistic healing and Eastern philosophy. The central tenet of this philosophy, according to Ausra, is to "discover the root cause" of ailments rather than adhering to the Western practice of soothing away symptoms by ingesting medicine or Ella Fitzgerald's throw pillows.
Each client undergoes a thorough consultation, which the practitioner uses to develop an individualized treatment plan. Clients working with massage therapist Jennifer can choose from different massage modalities to address their aches and pains or to just simply relax.
Certified hypnotherapist Lynne Nozicka facilitates wellness by helping clients overcome self-destructive inner monologues and behaviors. Her treatments address a wide breadth of issues, including struggles with weight, smoking, and anxiety.
Every appointment begins with a conversation that focuses on the habits, hang-ups, and issues that each individual wants to target. Nozicka then helps clients to envision their ideal, healthful selves before commencing hypnosis sessions that excavate negative thoughts hidden in the subconscious and replace them with adorable motivational cat posters. To supplement treatment plans, Lynne offers suggestions for permanent lifestyle changes.
